Mandy Bartle is a visionary with the proven ability to shift community outcomes. Early in her career, she published more than 30 reports identifying strategies for distressed areas, resulting in over $60MM in revenue for and over $1B of investment within South Florida’s underserved communities. In 2005, she organized South Florida’s first regional housing conference, first countywide housing needs assessment, and first coalition of businesses, community groups and government to address affordable housing. The efforts resulted in the formation of South Florida Community Land Trust, in which she has served as the founding Executive Director since 2010. Under her leadership, the organization has developed in more cities than any other land trust in Florida and currently has 475 units in the pipeline. Mandy holds a bachelor’s from Carnegie Mellon University in Architecture and Urban Studies, where she also completed graduate coursework in Public Policy and Management.
